Whilst restricted to a maximum number of 30 teams/280 players, sorry to those who didn’t make it this year – the following will compete in the APAT Season 12 UK Team Championship at Grosvenor Blackpool over the weekend of Friday 25th January 2019:

We draw your attention to the following:
The tournament will be run as an MTT with teams of 8 players competing for both a team and an individual prize pool, paid out on a 50/50 basis to the top 3 Teams and the top 18 Individuals.
Points will be scored based on individual player finishing positions, and will start to be earned on Day 2 by all remaining players on a ‘reverse position’ scoring position – eg; 100 wins 1 point, 1st wins 100 points.
The buyin is £75+£12 per player and is to be paid in advance via a Grosvenor Poker Online Holding Tank by each individual.
Payment by individuals will be co-ordinated via myself and each Team Captain – so Team Captains, please take a keen interest in ensuring that each of your members have a Grosvenor Poker account (download via http://www.apat.com/grosvenor-poker/) and that you know their table/screen nickname so you (we) can identify them in the Online Holding Tank. The Grosvenor Poker Online Holding Tank will be available mid-November and Team Captains will all be advised when it is live in the lobby – and also advised of the password for their team members.
Teams are to wear their own matching colour team shirts for both days of the event – if desired, EMBROIDERED POLO SHIRTS OR T-SHIRTS are available from APAT at a subsidised cost of £15 per shirt (reduced from £18) and in addition to the APAT logo and UK Team Championship event wording embroidered onto the shirt breast, can be branded with the Team Name plus player name or nickname (other wording or team logo embroidery is also possible but will cost more depending on requirements) – to order send a PM to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE. Shirts ordered via APAT will be available from the Friday night in the casino.
On the day, teams will be required to have a team photo taken PRIOR to the event starting – therefore please arrive by 1:30pm latest to allow the timely completion of this and not hold up the event starting because you’re too late!
The event has on occasion previously suffered from “team last minute dropouts”, and therefore, as we did previously, we will again maintain a team reserve list. All individual team members need to pay the entry fee of £87 via Grosvenor Poker in advance by 9pm on Sunday 6th January 2019. Any team failing to meet the buyin deadline for all 8 members will have their entry offered to teams on the reserve list. Any team that pays the full buyins and has a last minute need to drop out will have their entry offered to the next team on the reserve list and whichever team takes up this option will have their buyins used to reimburse the team (via APAT) that had to drop out.
Team Captains need to inform APAT of their team members’ names by Sunday 6th Jan 2019 LATEST, either by sending a PM to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE. A full list of all team members will be published to the APAT Forum thereafter, along with the table/seat draw.
The event structure can be found HERE – the UK Team Championship has a 15k Starting Stack.
APAT Player Of The Year Leaderboard Ranking Points will be awarded for this event.
